Is sickness inevitable?

Friday, September 21st, 2007

Q. Masters, my mother, aunt, and sister all have breast cancer. Am I destined to get it, or is there something I can do to prevent the experience?

A. Sweet sister, you may be said to have a “genetic predisposition” to this affliction that has run throughout your family because you share the same common human gene pool. That said, we assure you that you have the freedom of choice to select the experiences that you have during each lifetime.

You may have selected this particular family either so that you could experience this ailment, or so that you would be in a situation of having to deal with the emotion of having many close relatives being afflicted in this way. At this time we cannot tell you which is the case for you, because you are still making life decisions. We may not interfere with your choices—neither by telling you what you had previously decided, nor by explaining what the consequences of your various options will be for your body.

You must understand, however, that you do have the ability, both on a conscious and on an unconscious level, to prevent certain disorders from entering your system if you do not need to have that particular experience. You may also rid yourself of disorders that have impacted your body if you understand why you chose them in the first place; you then no longer need to deal with them. The reason you elected to have an experience may be that it can help you to define feelings about yourself, or may prove to you that you really can reverse adverse situations.

Your entire human life is but one lesson that keeps changing and evolving. You are the designer, the architect, the builder, maintenance personnel, and the owner of your life’s journey. Enjoy your happy, fulfilling trip.
